Texas GOP lawmaker predicts GOP to win 40 seats in November | United States and world
Texas gOP Rep. Michael McCaul predicted Republicans would get 40 House seats in midterm elections.
The leading member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee said Fox News Sunday that “historically” the minority party tends to land a few seats after the current president’s first term in the White House, adding that President Joe Biden’s popularity has plummeted.
“I predict we’ll probably get at least 40 seats because this president has been so unpopular on inflation, gas prices, under my rule, the foreign policy mistakes he made, and quite frankly , they seem like a weak president to him,” McCaul told Fox News host Sandra Smith.

During the presidential campaign, Biden used the words “Don’t compare me to the Almighty, compare me to the alternative,” according to the Washington Post. White House press secretary Jen Psaki suggested Biden should go back to using those words to help Democratic politicians avoid a power shift.
Pollster John McLaughlin predicted a huge victory for the Republican Party, which would oust Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi from the top job in the House. Kyle Kondik and J. Miles Coleman, editors of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia, predicted the GOP will win between 25 and 35 seats in the House.

In response to a question about what the GOP plans to do if it overturns the House, McCaul said Republicans would be interested in a return to border policies that were in place under former President Donald Trump, such as the policy of “stay in Mexico”. Under this policy, migrants who came to the United States seeking asylum had to stay in Mexico for months before appearing before an immigration judge. Shortly after taking office, Biden ended Trump-era politics.
“I don’t think Mexico would agree to do it again. They did it under Trump, and it worked, and I’m not sure it will work under this administration,” McCaul said.
As Biden is set to end Title 42, the pandemic-era policy that allows migrants to be turned away at the border for health issues, Biden administration officials, such as Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, would be “frustrated” by the possibility of 500,000 migrants trying to enter the United States through the southern border as Title 42 is lifted, McCaul said.
